The Lyira (Lie-ra) is the currency unit of the Kingdom of Lytera and the Principality of Pelkesa. The currency was created in 2018 as a mere idea, and only came into production in August, with the design process starting in June.

All the Banknotes show significant figures and locations of Lytera. The currency is valued as 75% of the Euro, though previously was worth 75% of the Pound. . The most noticeable shared feature is a picture of the current monarch, who, as of 2019, is Amelia I


The idea for a currency first appeared in Lytera's early history, where a planned shared currency between it and The Republic of Clubhausia was considered. The plans fell through after the Great Ruislip War however, and Lytera stuck with using the Pound, Ideas for a currency then circulated again in 2018, during the anniversary of the Civil War. The currency was planned for a 2019 release, with work beginning on its design in June 2019. On August 10, the currency came into circulation, the same day the designs were first shown. In 2020, with Lytera severing relations with the United Kingdom, the currency was pegged to the Euro.
